This garden appears so much larger than it is due to careful and creative design planning. It belongs to a Master Gardener and her knowledge of plants is quite evident as you stroll through the lovely garden.
There are a few paths to take and each one is as lovely as the next. It is similar to the last featured garden, The Garden of Towering Trees, Open Garden, in that many paths traverse the rear yard.
Throughout, there is art and interest.
Deep beds are lush and well cared for.
A focal point so nicely sited.
You can see from this view how the garden veers off in different directions, each having a different destination.
Many flowers are in both shade and sun, adding visual interest and color throughout.
This is a beautiful front planting, but not really giving a hint what you will find in the rear yard.
Paths are formed with gravel, laid flag and other natural materials as you enter the spaces.
Bright punches of color pop.
Containers are colorfully created.
And, of course, like any Master Gardener, the wildlife is heartily encouraged to make a home.
Appropriately up next, Splish, Splash, I’m Taking A Bath a post to set the stage for Let’s Get Ready to Rumble. They are cute pictorial stories similar in spirit to the post Ant Capades. Or more like, The Blue Jay and the Peanut Story since we do have characters with blue feathers in our first story. Then we get serious again with another garden – a Daylily Hybridizer.
Check out the Niagara Falls tab above. A pretty new photo of the Falls was posted yesterday. Same with Garden Moments, a new critter joins the others. Photos are added frequently.
